Singapore Airlines ditches ‘flight to nowhere’, will launch other on-ground initiatives

Lunchtime on A380s, tour of training facility, and home delivery of in-flight meals to be rolled out in October and November for Singapore customers. The big question is: how much will these experiences cost? Singapore Airlines yesterday officially confirmed that it will not be launching sightseeing flight-to-nowhere, but instead focus on offering on-ground experiences in the upcoming months. The three experiences will still leverage the use of its A380 aircraft, but in a different way. On top of that, SIA will also offer home delivery of its famed catering, as well as its training facility at Upper Changi. Singapore Airlines scrapped flights to nowhere after huge media discussion Singapore Airlines was rumoured to launch ‘flights to nowhere’ weeks earlier, following news of other airlines launching similar flights.

Having said that, some of the 20 destinations will continue to be served only sparingly, either by a weekly service, or less frequently. Destinations The two new destinations commencing October are Semarang in Indonesia and Tianjin in China. Semarang was originally served by Silkair before services were suspended, and was scheduled to start in July as part of the transition from Silkair to Scoot.
